The average American spends over $2000 a year at the gas pump. The average is higher if you’re a full-time professional driver (Rideshare, Deliveries). It’s time to start getting paid or save every time you pump gas. No more paying full price when you’re filling up. We’ve updated this article in February 2022. Since more info was needed to be shared or included.
We will go over a few simple apps in this article to achieve more benefits at the pump. The best part is that most of the work needed to be done is in the setup. Even that is not a long process at all. You’ll notice that it takes very little extra work to get gas and save.
Shell Fuel Rewards or another gas rewards card is the first step. I prefer Shell Rewards because it works best for me in other aspects. But most rewards give you minimum 5¢ per gallon. That’s not including if you take advantage of other offers in the app. Linking other rewards account like Dunking Donuts or making qualifying purchases.
While Shell Rewards is mentioned. Many of the other apps will work with other gas station rewards memberships. We found that since Shell Fuel Rewards and T-Mobile Tuesday have a deal every Tuesday. That it was our best choice. But your welcome to use another. We wrote a whole new article on the partnerships with this app.
T-Mobile Tuesday app is specifically for those under the T-Mobile tree (T-Mobile, Sprint, MetroPCS). The app gives out a variety of rewards every Tuesday. The Shell Fuel Rewards discount code is why it made it onto this list. Each member who has active service can download this app and reap from the benefits.
American Airlines Advantage is a program to earn miles on your flights. They have an option to connect with Fuel Rewards and earn miles while getting gas. It comes at the cost of the 5 cents you get with the gold membership.
GasBuddy app and card have many benefits on their own. Letting you know where the lowest prices are near you. The Gas card lets you activate savings at the pump. There is no credit check since it’s not a credit card. Gas Buddy gets charged the full price today. Then in 1 to 3 business days your bank will be charged the discounted price that you activated on the app at time of purchase.

Shop Your Way shopping rewards app has a variety of benefits. The reason it made this list is due to in part to being able to be linked to Gas Buddy card account. Resulting in cash back every time you fill up on gas. Then you can use the currency on Sears or Kmart stores or website purchases. They also have a decent amount of gift cards you can redeem with the cash back. Earn gift cards fro Uber, Groupon, AMC Theaters, Chili’s, GrubHub, Petco, Crunchyroll, Domino’s and many more
Get Upside cashback app is available in 6 states (Florida, Georgia, Texas, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina) at the moment. It’s good if you live or renting a car while in those states. Like GasBuddy app. It will locate and show the discounts for the stations near you. They pay per gallon with a proof of card purchase receipt (Have to pay with a card to receive the cash back). If you use the link and or promo code AN7843 to get a bigger sign-up discount.
All of these apps combine have made or saved me easily over $600 in a year. That’s too much of hard-earned money to just let go. By using the referral links and promo codes. You’ll and possibly us earn some referral bonuses. Great start to earning and saving at the gas pump. If there is a gas app that you believe we missed and should mention.
